Thrive Leadership Awards

Tue, 28 Feb, 2017 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Woodland Park Zoo’s Board of Directors and President and CEO Alejandro Grajal, PhD, invite you to the new Thrive Leadership Awards! The dinner event honors extraordinary leadership in conservation and philanthropy while sipping “bat friendly” tequilas and mescals. Rodrigo Medellín, PhD, Thrive’s guest speaker and inaugural Conservation Leadership Award honoree, has dedicated his life to the study, teaching and conservation of bats. Rodrigo is a celebrated senior professor at the National University of Mexico’s Institute of Ecology and star of “The Bat Man of Mexico”―a BBC-produced film chronicling how Rodrigo and “bat friendly” tequilas and mescals are revolutionizing Mexico’s tequila industry and saving species. Please join the zoo for a special evening of discovery and recognition of the people who make the zoo’s mission possible.
